Dibert-Roddick Planetarium to host Special Shows

The clear fall nights make great conditions for sky gazing. Ship’s astronomy department has been hosting monthly showings of the sky’s constellations for years and is keeping the tradition going. Tuesday night, The Dibert-Roddick planetarium hosted, “The Motions and Patterns of the Autumn sky.”  The show highlighted the patterns of summer and how the transition into fall affects the night sky. Allen Armstrong, professor of physics, narrates the shows in honor of Jack Roddick and makes it educational for kids. Armstrong maps the skies through the mythological stories of the stars. The shows are open to the public and start at 7:30 PM. For reservations and additional information contact
